  1. Past hour
  2. I'm happy to see these turn out so well. Are they using different molds as well? I want to say the proportions are different - slightly less moe blob, longer-limbed - from the regular VFG girls, and even from the various prototypes, but that could just be wishful thinking. Will definitely pick up at least the Makina and Reina kits when they come out, probably the Kaname too. I agree it's odd they went with the Kairos wings for Makina and Reina and ONLY Makina and Reina, but on the other hand, it helps them stand out and emphasizes their closer connection to each other... but I'd also bet that more than that, Aoshima are banking on the more popular Kairos design to boost their appeal since the characters themselves aren't as popular as the other three. (I have no source about said popularity, just making a guess based on my gut feeling.) IIRC the original character-coded designs these are based on were from a CG video for a Walkure concert where they were all FSW Siegfrieds with their respective J/F/C/E/S heads and all equipped with the gunpod equipment pod. (The Hasegawa Reina 31E kit does come with all the parts necessary to build it with the radome, though. Dare I hope they include that here as well?)
  3. Definitely getting that.
  4. Looks like moderoid is doing a Dragonar kit as well. Saw these on taghobby. I really liked the hg kit that Bandai did recently, but knowing Bandai, that may be the only kit they do from the line. If Moderoid does more than just the Dragonar 01, I’ll probably buy into them
  5. I just realized I phrased that the wrong way... as you said, Same kit but with the armor.
  6. I'm 90% confident it'll only be offered as a full kit, not a separate standalone item. No real reason why, just my own suspicion. I wonder if they'll do a similar with the CF and include the reaction warheads instead, a la the DX toys.
  7. It’s probably the same kit with the armor
  8. If it's a whole new kit that includes the Armor, I'll be glad I waited.
  9. Today
  10. Don't get me wrong, that's cool, but can it be bought separately, or do we need to buy a whole nother kit...?
  11. Interesting they went with the custom Walkure schemes and not the ones in the show, but maybe they're just alternates? And half of them seem to be Kairos-based, which I can't call a bad thing. They actually don't look bad, I might have to grab a couple... I just hope the tops of the fighters aren't screwed up with all the attachment ports for the little animal bits they've started including with these.
  12. And unfortunately, we may never know with Mr. Stevenson's passing. If he isn't killed off in the next episode, recasting the part may be the only way to move that story forward.
  13. It’s a pretty wild time for plastic kits in general. Lots of Macross, Orgus, Votoms, Megazone 23, Patlabor and many others recently. My backlog has a backlog. I can’t remember a time when there were so many offerings
  14. https://www.thechosenprime.com/jtusf2tfcken They often post late or their listings are sometimes difficult to find.
  15. For those into model kits. Good Smile Company is releasing Moderoid GARLAND. https://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/15035/MODEROID+Garland.html Stands at approximately 160mm tall in Maneuver Slave form and features several points of articulation. It can be transformed from its Maneuver Craft to Maneuver Slave form without changing any parts. Laser Orb Gun included. The various parts of model have been separated into different colored runners and pre-painted parts, making it easy to recreate the character with a simple assembly. Comes with a small figure of Shogo Yahagi* that can be used to ride the model during Maneuver Craft form. *Miniature figure must be painted. April 2024 release. Y7500. https://www.hlj.com/moderoid-garland-megazone-23-gsc18543 https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-RBT-7512 https://anime-export.com/index.php?product=73160 https://www.nin-nin-game.com/en/moderoid/104444-moderoid-megazone-23-garland-yahagi-shogo-good-smile-company-.html https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/255516?o=4
  16. I coulda sworn there was a newer Megazone thread.
  17. REALLY enjoyed 5-6, 7 was a bit of a letdown, lets see where it goes in 8. I think the senate scene just emphasized that if they are really intent on doing this era, and doing big stories, like Thrawn, they have to recast Luke Han and Leia, they can't just keep dancing around them not being present. I also think they need to take a lot more time and polish on the writing.
  18. I'm hoping they'll do a fighter as well. And hoping for a VF-171 battroid from some company or another as well.
  19. So many new Macross kits from so many companies. Hasegawa, Bandai, Wave, Max Factory. Regults, power armors, VF-171 variants, YF-29s, YF-21, new VF-1s. What a great time to be a Macross plastic model fan.
  20. 1/72 YF-29 is super great news. The VF-19Kai is not my favorite, but more battroid kits is cool. Hopefully the start of a line of battroids. 1/72 standard YF-19 battroid later? And please please do a 1/72 YF-30 fighter.
